Adam's Half-Marathon for Jewish Care

26 Oct 2020

Jewish Care’s Director of Fundraising & Community Engagement, Adam Overlander-Kaye is running a tailored 21km half marathon route in North West London this weekend and also will also run the 21km Queen Elizabeth Half Marathon in December for Jewish Care.

He says, “Seven months ago I couldn’t run 1k and now I'm going to do my first ever Half Marathon. Since lockdown, I have seen our care staff and social workers at Jewish Care working in physically and emotionally difficult conditions every single day looking after older, vulnerable members of our community. I’m so pleased I was able to raise funds from my half marathon to help support Jewish Care, the charity I am incredibly proud to work for.”

If you would like to take on a challenge, whether it’s pounding the streets, climbing up mountains or cycling across the city, there are events for people of all ages and fitness levels to help raise money for Jewish Care.

No challenge is too big or small, taking on a 10k, half marathon, marathon or bike rides are a great way to get fitter whilst supporting your favourite charity. Jewish Care will support you all the way to the finish line with a dedicated member of the team to help you with your fundraising and training to get you ready for the challenge.
